Delaware River Boating Accident Attorneys

Even though a Jet Ski or powerboat can be every bit as dangerous as a motorcycle or automobile, most people simply don’t exercise as much caution when operating a boat on the waterways in Delaware and Pennsylvania as they do behind the wheel of a car. Boating is considered a recreational activity and boaters frequently bring alcohol or drugs into the mix or throw caution to the wind in their zeal to unwind. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a boating accident, you want an experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive injury attorney to protect your interests.

At the office of Michael J. Hood, LLC, we have concentrated our practice on representing clients in Delaware in personal injury claims for more than 31 years. We take a straightforward approach, always telling you what you need to know even if it’s not what you want to hear. We’ll take the time to learn the details of your case so that we can give you a timely and realistic assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of your claim, the reasonable value of your case and your chances of success. We will make certain that you always know of any developments in your case, as well as your options, so that you can make informed decisions about your future.
